Biology Classes: Mandatory HIV/AIDS and Comprehensive Sexual Health/Sex Ed

The East Side Union High School District will be teaching a mandatory HIV/AIDS and Comprehensive Sexual Health (Sex Ed.) curriculum during March, April and/or May in your student’s biology course.  California state law (EC 51930- 51939) requires that Sex Ed. and HIV/AIDS prevention education be taught in middle school and in high school. You can examine the complete set of instructional materials for this unit at the main office of your son or daughter’s high school.


State law allows you to remove your student from comprehensive sexual health education or HIV/AIDS prevention education.  If you do not want your student to participate in the comprehensive sexual health and HIV/AIDS prevention instructional program, please return the Lesson Withdrawal Form, given to your student, to your student’s biology teacher by the start of the unit (date will be on the form provided by your son's/daughter's instructor). A copy of the curriculum binder is available in N1. If you have questions, please contact our site principal, Mr. Berg (Bergbj@esuhsd.org).

The Independence High School Athletic Program needs YOUR support! if you need a new mattress, come in to support us on September 29th from 10am to 5pm at the high school. You may be wondering, what is a mattress fundraiser? Here are some of the major points


  1. Its the same as the store : You walk in and it literally looks like a store, just in our school.
  2. Customers get the same mattresses as they would in stores : If you or anyone you know who is interested and wants to do their shopping before the event, here are the brands and lines we will have at our event to compare: Simmons Beautysleep, Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Series, Simmons Platinum Series, Simmons Black Series, Englander Renue and Black collections, Malouf Pillows, Malouf Sheets, Malouf Bed Frames, Intellibed, Wellsville Memory Foam Mattresses.
  3. We get a huge chunk of the profits of the event , from people who were going to buy a new mattress anywaysEvery person who is going to buy a new mattress at a store would be missing out on getting the same product as they would get in a store at the same or lower price with us, but they would be supporting us greatly. There are schools that have raised $60,000 doing this around the country and local ones that have raised $20,000 or more all in just one day. All we have to do is talk about it, make sure everyone in the community knows about the event, and make sure those that need a new mattress come in to OUR storefront on the day of the event to buy with us.


Attached is a flyer that you can download, bring it in for a free set of sheets wit the purchase of your new mattress.
